In “Ode on Melancholy” John Keats expresses to readers the truth he sees, that joy and pain are inseparable and to experience joy fully we must experience sadness fully. Keats valued intensity of emotion, thought, and experience (“Classification Of Poem”). Keats does not stray away from the suggestion that feeling intensely means that grief or depression may cause sorrow and torture.
Everyone everywhere feels sadness. Whether it is everyday, or every once in a while, it is a feeling shared by all. In John Keats’ “Ode on Melancholy”, the poet expresses his views on the emotion and a mood of balance is conveyed with the help of the philosophy of the speaker, the language used and the overall message conveyed.
John Keats was born in London on 31 October 1795, the eldest of Thomas and Frances Jennings Keats’s four children. Although he died at the age of twenty-five, Keats had perhaps the most remarkable career of any English poet. He published only fifty-four poems, in three slim volumes and a few magazines. But over his short development he took on the challenges of a wide range of poetic forms.ODE ON MELANCHOLY by John Keats is the one of six poems that make up THE GREAT ODES all of which he had written in 1918. In contrast to the other odes, Keats himself fails to appear in the poem creating a divide between poet, author and reader; he speaks directly to the audience rather than to an abstract object or emotion. In doing this, Keats draws upon the readers own personal experience.John Keats. Study Guide. Summary.
